The Digital Nomad’s Guide To Working From Anywhere On Earth. Twenty years ago, a Hitachi executive named Tsugio Makimoto predicted a revolution.

The Digital Nomad’s Guide To Working From Anywhere On Earth

In the future, he wrote, high-speed wireless networks and low-cost mobile devices will break the link between occupation and location. Thanks to Moore and his Law, millions would indulge an innate wanderlust by selling their homes and living abroad, doing their jobs over the internet and enjoying the benefits of first-world income and developing-world cost of living.

No more rat-race grind of cubicle and commute. Makimoto’s vision appeared in his 1997 book Digital Nomad, written with coauthor David Manners. The book was virtually ignored by the public. Ten years later, the digital nomad idea resurfaced in Tim Ferriss’s 2007 best-selling book The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich.

The 11 Best Travel Books I Read in 2015

I’ve read over 80 books this year on topics ranging from travel to business to history to self-improvement, as well as biographies! I’ve fallen in love with reading all over again. Growing up I was an avid reader (not many 15-year-olds read the unabridged Les Misérables for fun), but in the last few years, I focused more on Netflix than books. I’m glad I started reading again. I forgot how wonderful it is to learn, understand, and explore the worlds of others — to see life through their eyes and be inspired to go new places and live better.

And so, with another year coming to an end, I wanted to share the books that inspired wanderlust in me the most: 1. A reader recommendation that made my must-read list a few months back, this book examines the why of travel. 2. 3. 4. 5. Flying gives me a lot of anxiety. 6. How Apply for the Amtrak Residency for Writers. The World's a Festival - Join Us. Rdvouz - Long Distance Ridesharing to Anywhere. So you want to see the northern lights. Top Brewery Road Trip, Routed Algorithmically. There are thousands of craft breweries in the United States (and the world) that make delicious beer.

Top Brewery Road Trip, Routed Algorithmically

In 2014, the Brewer's Association put the United States count at 3,464, with about 1,800 microbreweries and 1,400 brewpubs. BreweryDB currently lists about 4,500. So there's a lot of good beer out there — and yet so little time. Unless your job is to drink beer every day, visiting every brewery is probably not a practical goal to strive for. However, visiting the best breweries is something worth thinking about. Community beer and brewery review site RateBeer puts out a list every year of the top 100 breweries in the world, “according to reviews taken last year and weighted by performance within and outside of style, balanced by indicators of depth.”

That sounds like a great road trip. If we know where we want to go already, the next step is to figure out what route to take. Forget that though. Of course, road trips aren't all about the official stops. The Ultimate Guide To Booking Cheap Flights. A while back I wrote a post about ‘How to book cheap flights on Skyscanner‘ and it remains one of the most read posts of all time on my blog.

The Ultimate Guide To Booking Cheap Flights

Everyone loves cheap flights and everyone wants to know where to find them. Having taken 100’s of flights (probably 1000’s actually!) Over the past 10 years, I think I have now got the hang of where to find and book the cheapest flights online. Trip planner and gas calculator with maps, top hotels, restaurants and attractions.

This Map Shows the Ultimate U.S. Road Trip. The concept of a road trip is as American as apple pie, and yet, devising the “best” U.S. driving route is a bit of a head scratcher.

This Map Shows the Ultimate U.S. Road Trip

Much depends on time parameters, personal preference, and frankly, how long you want to spend behind the wheel. Tracy Staedter at Discovery News decided to take on that challenge, enlisting Randy Olson—Michigan State University doctoral student and the man behind the famed (and super helpful) Where’s Waldo algorithm—to devise what you might call the platonic ideal of the United States road trip. The parameters were: It had to hit all of the 48 continental states, every stop had to be a National Natural Landmark, a National Historic Site, a National Park, or a National Monument, and of course, had to be confined to car travel and within U.S. borders. With a stop in Washington D.C. and two in California, the result is 50 points of all American awesomenesss.

Backpacking Gear List: 3-Season Checklist + Template

As part of the Planning Curriculum for my guided backpacking trips, every client was required to complete a gear list. It was a hugely beneficial assignment, but it involved significant administrative time: in a 5-year period, I created sample gear list spreadsheets for 55+ trips and reviewed the selections of 400+ clients. To make the process more efficient, I began developing a standardized gear list template, which I’ve tweaked further and which I’m sharing now. Backpacking Gear List: 3-Season Checklist + Template.
